With Nigerian music gaining precedence worldwide, King Perryy stands out as one of the country's most distinctive and ambitious young acts. The creator of what he calls the “Continental Sound,” the former seminary student and would-be Catholic priest fuses the melodies and rhythms of today''s Afrobeats with pan-African influences and reggae/dancehall to create deeply resonant songs that transcend cultures and borders. With a run of successful singles (“Man on Duty,” “Work 'N' Grind”) to his credit and over 70 million streams on digital platforms, he released his debut album, Citizen of the World, in 2021.
More on King Perryy
Born Anthony Offiah, King Perryy grew up in the oil city of Port Harcourt, the same town that has spawned Nigerian music superstars Burna Boy and Omah Lay. As a child, his father introduced him to a wide range of music, from the reggae of Bob Marley and Sean Paul to Nigerian classics from Fela Kuti and Alex Zitto. Some of his favourite music from the time was from boy bands Westlife and the Backstreet Boys, whose melodies he maintains as an influence to this day. Taking to rap, he made his first tracks at age 12, freestyling over instrumentals from the group P Square, which he downloaded online.
With hit singles "Work 'N' Grind," "YKTFV," and "Man on Duty," as well as dominating on features such as "Kom Kom" with Timaya and Patoranking, King Perryy, who is now an independent artist, has amassed over 70 million streams across digital streaming platforms.
King Perryy's debut album, Citizen of the World, was released in April 2021. Citizen of the World was three years in the making and included 11 new songs as well as four of King Perryy's most recent singles, "YKTFV," "Waist," "Work 'N' Grind," and "My Darlina." Timaya, Mayorkun, Oxlade, and Phyno also appear on the project, with beats by top hitmakers across the industry.
For the artiste, Citizen of the World is more than King Perryy's debut project: It's a manifesto and a mission statement for how he sees the world. “Citizen of the World is an identity, a mindstate,” King Perryy says. “I found the title the moment I found myself.”
